    Hmmm, seems to me that one's been around for quite awhile.

    Since this is about email....

    My mom was born in 1944. This virus has been crippling her for years and has no sign of going away. Several months ago, she wanted to use one of my machines instead of her computer to check her email - I can't remember why. Anyway, I sat her down at one of my desktop machines (winXP, IE, always connected, easy to use, etc.), signed on and asked her what the homepage address was for her email. This was her response..."But, but....if this isn't MY computer how will it know where I am so that I can get my email???" She was dead serious!!

    By the way, I may have a touch of the virus, too as I forget this one "Causes you to forget to attach the attachment." ALL the time.
